Topic: the last two weeks
All of us were so busy that we couldn’t do a blog but now we can. Now our unit is actually Nature Tales not Lorax. We are learning about figurative language and the some of them was personification, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, alliteration. The whole class was observing nature it was amazing. Seeing a lizard was fun. The lizard was as long as a straw. Mean while we have art in class and a new artist. Today we were doing buddies we were showing them graphs with m and m’s after that we got to eat the m and m’s. and I love it.
Topic: Nature Tales
First week of school after Tet Holiday we saw a barn owl which was dead but pretty exciting because I got to learn something about barn owl. We got to watch a basketball tournament it was UNIS vs ISHCMC, but we lost. We were cheering for UNIS but for some reason we had to leave a few seconds early. On Friday Andrew built a tall tower with 10’s and 100’s blocks. We went on a nature walk and we were hearing animals which was easy.
My first weeks of 2017 have been very busy. On winter break I went to Singapore. I watched the movie “Sing.” It was so fun. On Sports day I did tug of war, I ate a banana and there was so many worms on the last game. We got a new student named Ben. It’s too bad he is sick. One thing that I am looking forward to Tet is no bad luck.
This week on Wednesday, we had a math morning. Some of our parents came to our classroom. First we showed them how to decompose a rectangle. Then we played math games! There were 5 different games to choose from. I played 3 games with my mom. We played sunken treasure, take one thousand, and perfect 500.
This week there was a lot of events.

Title: Non fiction book
This week I started planning a non fiction. Mr. Papaseit taught me how to do coding. I learned how to control the robot named Dash. I learned the meaning of sprite which is a actor. I learned how to use blocky. We did 3 challenges using dash we did zig zags, drawing a square, and moved 100 squares.
The last two weeks have been very exciting. We did many activities and had some special events. Here are three of my favorite events.
The first thing I really liked was the ice skating field trip. I enjoyed learning about friction. I also liked siting on the seal. I learned what friction is. The purpose was to learn our science.
The second thing I really liked was playing tug of war. I enjoyed learning about the forces pull and push. I liked doing tug of war against the teachers.
The third thing I enjoyed was ping pong ball team challenge. I liked bouncing the Ping pong ball/golf ball. The purpose was to learn which will drop first the ping pong ball or the golf ball.
Today’s topic: Where Are All The Desks ?
Today’s Artifact: classroom photo
This week, our classroom went through many changes! We got some sofas, we moved some desks, and we brought in some cushions. A yoga mat was donated, and we have some tables that are different heights. I get the choice get the choice to sit where I want to be comfortable so they want can DO THERE BEST WORK!!!
I think my new seating is comfortable. I think my new seating is a smart choice.
I wonder where are the desk? I wonder how they lowered the table?
